Fabric Bracelets

I recently got back from a 2 week vacation back to my "home".  I had to leave my love here and got to go stay at my parents with my two little rascals. 

We had a blast.
We missed the man.
I spent many a craft night, afternoon and a weekend with my dear sister Heather.
Miss you.

About an hour after I left she sent me a text of a picture of her giant crying eyeball.  Sad.

Earlier this summer I was flipping through a catalog of a fabulous designer.  I wanted to cover myself head to toe with fabric I love it so much.  If it were socially acceptable I'd drape myself in fabric. (Seinfeld anyone!? :)

Immediately I got out my scrap fabric and started on a bracelet I designed in my head.
We are very impulsive.
Heather has paused a movie, ran to her bathroom and cut bangs to match the actress. No lie.

This is what I came up with.


Since this summer I've been debating about offering a tutorial on how to make these or selling them or both.




They are made with scrap fabrics into small yo-yos and then glued to a thin elastic piece.  They are simple, but take a decent amount of time.

I quite like mine and wear it often.  It gets me that much closer to my ultimate goal of being covered in darling fabric. :)

What do you think?
